for president bashar al-assad to step down. meanwhile, "the new york times" cited reports that iraq is again allowing iran to use its air space to fly weapons to the syrian regime. the iraqis had shut down the air corridor earlier this year, under u.s. pressure. a former police chief who touched off a major scandal in china has been charged with defection, taking bribes and abusing his power. state media announced the charges against wang lijun today. in february, wang briefly took refuge at a u.s. consulate after being demoted as police chief in a city in southwestern china. that led to the ouster of bo xilai-- his former boss-- as communist party leader there. bo is still under investigation. last month, bo's wife gu kailai was given a suspended death sentence for the murder of a british businessman. in afghanistan, the military announced today it has arrested or expelled hundreds of soldiers, as part of an effort to stop so-called insider attacks on foreign troops. the attacks come as the u.s. tries to continue its plan to transition out of afghanistan. margaret warner has the story. >> w
in america for anything, it's for a bad reason. when they were flowing into iraq to martyr themselves trying to kill american troops in iraq, al qaeda documents seized by the u.s. army in iraq showed the little town of derna in libya sent more volunteers to die in iraq in 2006 and 2007 than any other place in the entire arab world. libya, per capita, as a country, sent more fighters to iraq than any other country, but it was specifically derna, that town, that sent the highest number of fighters. the most. full stop. and in 2008 the man who would become our ambassador, christopher stevens, he went to derna to assess the state of militancy and anti-americanism there. .and his cable back to washington actually used the bruce willis movie "diehard" as an analysis for understanding how intense the local attitudes were there about jihad. once the uprising against moammar gadhafi was under way, cnn reported this june that al qaeda central, the part that used to be headed by bin laden, al qaeda central dispatched a top operator from the tribal areas in pakistan to go to derna, to go to that part of
and fought alongside this country prosperous soldiers in iraq and afghanistan -- this country's bravest soldiers in iraq and afghanistan. like all veterans, i swore an oath to defend this country. our country made a promise, too. a promise to support us overseas and to fight for us when we came home. i am here tonight to say that president obama has kept that promise. >> yes, sir! >> i noticed -- i now live with my wife and son in the great state of colorado. many of the men and women with whom i served never returned home. others came home bearing visible and invisible scars of battle. when they and their families needed help, our commander in chief was there for them. from extending veterans benefits to strengthening the v.a. health system, president obama knows that the military is the standard for american values. it was wrong that men and women that i served with could be told that they were not good enough just because of their sexual orientation.

soldier in iraq. the soldier was born in oklahoma to welsh mother and u.s. navy father read his parents fell in love. his father was stationed at the u.s. military base in wales. the soldier showed early promise as a boy, winning top prizes at science fairs three years in a row. he believed in the truth. like all of us, he hated hypocrisy. he believed in the party and the right for all of us to pursue happiness. he believed in the values that founded an independent united states. he believes and medicine, justice, and pain. like many teenagers, he was unsure what to do with his life. he knew he wanted to defend his country. he knew he wanted to learn about the world. he entered the u.s. military, and like his father, trained as an intelligence analyst. in late 2009, age 21, he was deployed to iraq. there, it is alleged, he sought u.s. military that did not often follow the rule of law and she sought u.s. military that did not often follow the rule of law. it is alleged it was there in baghdad in 2010 that he gave to wikileaks, gave to me, and alleged he gave to the world details that ex
of foreign service. he was an information management officer. he had served in iraq. he's a father, a father of two children, a devoted husband. we now know what happened to them. so we must continue our strong partnership with libya after the fall of qadhafi. but i call upon the new leadership, call for calm, call for tolerance, call for you're angry. there are ways to do protests and so on. you don't have to go around killing the american ambassador when our air people, our air force flew over libya and our president and our congress work to support this new government coming up. and then there's cairo. because of anger over a video -- and i don't know about this video. i don't know its content. but i do know the outcome, that our embassy in cairo was stormed. they tore down our american flag, they replaced it with another flag. but we are under the flag of the united states of america and our flag is in egypt, our flag is in egypt because we are great allies to the egyptian government and great supporters of the egyptian people as they come through the arab spring and again trying to crea
of iraq. for it was utterly clear the floodgates have been opened so wide that what might be called the politics of the richer america would certainly become american politics. i called it being a critic. all the world is as interested in march of 2010, i wrote about a group of pundits and warrior journalists, eager not to sue u.s. military leave iraq. that appeared on the op-ed page of the "los angeles times" and then began wandering the media world. one of its stops, curiously enough was the military newspaper, stars and stripes. this e-mail respons read your article in stars and stripes. when was the last time you visited iraq? a critique and 15 well-chosen world. his point, i was then a 65-year-old guy who had never been anywhere near iraq and undoubtably never would have. possibly more than once and disagreed with my assessment. this is not to be taken lightly. what, after all, do i know about iraq? only the reporting i've been able to read. the analysis found lots of experts, on the other hand, even from thousands of miles away, i was one of many who could see enough by early

[ cheering and applause ] >> if you reject the notion that this nation's promise is reserved for the few, your voice must be heard in this election. must if you reject the notion that our government is forever beholden to the highest bidder, you need to stand up in this election.

[ applause ] in moments both public and private, he's the father i've always known, the grandfather my children love and adore, and the vice president our nation needs. so tonight, mr. chairman, it's my great honor to place into nomination for the office of vice president of the united states, my father, my hero, joe biden. i move to suspend the rules and nomination by acclamation joe bid biden. as a democratic vice presidential candidate. [ applause ] >> the son of joe biden saying he wants to suspend the former rules, the formal roll call, and nominate joe biden. >> i know joe must be emotional right now. when your son calls you a hero, you got to feel it in the heart. we have a motion to suspend the rules and nominate joe biden by acclamation as a democratic party's vice presidential candidate. is there a second? all in favor of the motion say aye. all opposed. the ayes have it. the motion is adopted. pursuant to the co
the first iraq war veteran to serve in congress. patrick, good morning to you. let's note first of all what mitt romney did say at the american legion. this was a speech he gave on august 26th. he said in part "of course, we are still at war in afghanistan. we still have uniformed men and women in conflict risking their lives just as you once did. how deeply we appreciate their service. we honor them, we respect and love them. that's a 16-second quote out of about a 16-minute speech, but no specifics about policy there. why do you think there's been such a fear or reluctance to get specific? >> because then he has to take a stand, craig, and he refuses to do that. it's like what john kerry said in his speech the other night. mitt romney has to debate himself before he actually debates barack obama in a couple weeks. the quote that you said where mitt romney said i talked in my speech about the things that were unimportant. there's 68,000 sons of american families that are fighting for us in afghanistan. that's not important to mitt romney? i mean, he wants to be commander in chief. not just
they inspired to step forward to defend our nation, a generation generation who fought in iraq and to still fight in afghanistan. lettuce rededicate our own lives to the cause of giving back to our great nation. four is one of our nations leaders said, the strength of our democracy has always rested on the willingness of those who believe in its values and in their will to serve, to give something back to this country and now it's my privilege to introduce to you the man who spoke those words and who lives them every day, our secretary of defense, leon panetta. [applause] >> mr. president, mrs. obama, general dempsey, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, and in particular the family members who lost a loved one here on 9/11, 11 years ago on a morning very much like this, terrorists attacked the symbols of american strength, our economy and our commerce, our military might and our democracy. and took the lives of citizens for more than 90 countries. it was the worst terrorist attack on america in our history. today, people gather across the united states, around the world to remember

reason i am standing here tonight. because in the faces of those young veterans who come back from iraq and afghanistan, i see my grandfather, who signed up after pearl harbor, marched in patton's army, and was rewarded by a grateful nation with the chance to go to college on the gi bill. in the face of that young student who sleeps just three hours before working the night shift, i think about my mom, who raised my sister and me on her own while she worked and earned her degree; who once turned to food stamps but was still able to send us to the best schools in the country with the help of student loans and scholarships. when i listen to another worker tell me that his factory has shut down, i remember all those men and women on the south side of chicago who i stood by and fought for two decades ago after the local steel plant closed. and when i hear a woman talk about the difficulties of starting her own business, i think about my grandmother, who worked her way up from the secretarial pool to middle-management, despite years of being passed over for promotions because she was a woman
eight trips to iraq alone since he was vice president. a total of, i have it here, 16 trips all-tolled in his career. they want that in everybody's mind when he heads into the debate with the opposition and paul ryan, of course. i want to tell everybody, we're going down to the floor right now. we have quick takes from our entire team. jake? >> we've heard osama bin laden's name mentioned a number of times. but white house advise oars say they expect the president's biggest task is to paint a picture of the economy over the next four years. they've contrasted well the choice between president obama, running the country for the next four years, versus mitt romney. but what they really need to do is make it so president obama paints a popular and powerful picture of the economy going forward for the next four years, as opposed to the last four years. >> across the floor from me, jon karl. >> they're trying to recapture that lightning in a bottle you've heard the president talk about from 2008. you heard from joe biden, his favorite slogans. down here on the floor, the delegates al
in iraq, reformed the stun loan system. no record, steve? >> well, i mean, what ryan is trying to sell there is rationalization. i mean, that -- line in the speech really is -- designed to trigger an emotion in poem. designed to take the swing voters who i am talking about -- administration with a lot of accomplishments. the congress in 2009, 2010 was as accomplished or more accomplished than any congress since the great society days. they can be aware of that at some level. but the calculation there from romney, ryan people, is they -- ultimately want to vote obama out because of where the economy is and how economic anxiety is. they are looking for something they can tell themselves it will make it okay to vote him out. what paul ryan is offering there. again, i'm not sure that will be enough to win the election on but it is a -- testament to the power of how -- bad economy can hurt a president that that sort of strategy has the -- tie right now heading into this convention. >> now, jonathan, the president slammed romney specifically for his failure to address the war in afghanistan
